Hmm, it might be an issue with FAT32 timestamps.  Could you please add
"-v" to the `cp' switches and post here everything that `cp' displays
while copying the lisp/ directory as part of "make install"?

Shouldn't be a problem, but are you sure you don't have a sh.exe
anywhere on your Path?

A bit old, and an MSYS build, but shouldn't be a problem, either.

I guess we could rewrite the install target in lisp/Makefile so that
it copies the *.el files first.  But I'd like first to see the order
of copying in your case, and the output from "cp -v" should show that.
